The options are very limited - DosBox may be the best(and perhaps, the
Vista uses a new video driver model (so-called "WDDM") which allows the
fancy composition displays in Vista. The Windows developers explicitly
dropped support for the full-screen VGA Mode, in the WDDM code. There were
considerable technical problems in making that full-screen mode work in
the new WDDM regime, and it was deemed "not worth it" for the small number
of user scenarios where character-mode apps needed to run full-screen on a
Vista machine. This issue was reported several times during the Vista Beta
Dedicated devices like POS cash registers generally run Windows Embedded,
not Vista; so they didn't count.
